Default Drying Muckboots/Grubs

Apart from a purpose made boot drier or stuffing newspaper in them, what's the best way to dry these boots?

Found myself with the same problem last week.My solution was to stick my good lady's hair dryer in each boot for ten minutes.Worked a treat!.

Boys your both making the classic mistake.

Both makes of boot are neoprene so require dry ambient are flow to dry out in, so if you leave them either in the garage or any other damp place or indeed if you pack them with anything that reduces the air flow and they will not dry.

Either take them in to the house or if you use your car regularly leave them in there but in either case do not pack them with anything and make sure that they get some air

Keith, the material lining which is supposed to wick away the perspiration is soaked in my boots and leaving them to air-dry isn't going to dry them overnight.

If you have working air conditioning in your car a good blast of hot air conditioned air works wonders for getting rid of moisture.

I just simply place my wellies, boots, socks and anything else that i cannot dry on a double radiator overnight. Top tip pull the insoles out and place them next to your wellies on the radiator.

Anthony

If your house is warm they will dry but if you want to be sure do as Jon says and put them on a radiator

Keith, these are the snowline version so have an insulated sole. The heat doesn't get through the boot to dry it when they are on the radiator, trust me I've tried. We have a twin fin radiator in the hallway and even when it was banging out the heat, they stayed wet. Putting the boots alongside it didn't work as the neoprene gives it the insulation I bought them for in the first place. If I can find a way to hang them upside down over the radiator, I may have more luck! In the meantime, it's insoles out and newspaper in (and changed regularly) until I can set the hairdryer on them.
